#COMUSIC – TOP 30 APRIL 2022

MAY 02, 2022 – Another road trip come and gone. This time we drove through through Utah, Arizona and New Mexico during a seven day trip. I was asked more than once about my license plate COMUSIC. I was happy to tell the story.

I will say that we often take Colorado community/public radio stations for granted. I have yet to explore any other region of Western USA from Montana south to the deserts of CA and AZ that meets the standard established here. Much love to all of the stations in CO that support home-grown Colorado music.

Another thing I noticed was the lack of original music venues. Musicians I met along the way said most venues in their area were geared more towards artists doing cover songs because of the tourists, who were overwhelmingly over the age of 60.

While I was on the road I built the LIVE MUSIC VENUES list – check it out. If there’s anything missing let me know please.

Eleven titles stayed in the APRIL TOP 30, crossing over from MARCH: thirteen titles were (D) debuts for the month; ten of which were featured for the month at Indie 102.3. Six titles re-entered the chart.

Spin data pulled from the Colorado Playlist105.5 The Colorado SoundIndie 102.3 and eleven stations that use playlist generator Spinitron, designed to benefit non-commercial community/public and college radio stations and offering advanced search functions for artists and agents.

Besides the spins chart published here, check out the weekly Roots Music Report TOP 50 Colorado Chart. Where I track titles going back a year, RMR charts often reflect titles that are more than a couple of years old. RMR also receives spin counts from a different set of reporters in Colorado, as well as from both terrestrial and Internet based radio around the country and Europe.

Titles are linked to their respective YouTube pages, if available.
